Take the car to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes, they will scan the vehicle at no charge to you. Write the codes down and respond back to this post and we can begin problem solving.
The codes will help to narrow the system down that is causing the problem.
You might want to make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. If one of the cables has an intermittant connection problem, it will cause the car to shut down.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

My 2001 grand am gt wont stay idle it gos up in down but drives fine when going down the street


check the vacuum hose in front of the engine. It's a small rubber hose behind a few small plugs, but it's directly in front of the engine. The hose gets dry rotted and allows air to get in which affects the gas mix. The hose is very cheap at any auto parts store. This is a very simple hose to replace yourself for under $10.

As I was driving down the road, all at once 4 warning lights came on my dash at once (Check Engine Soon, Service Engine Soon, ABS, & Trac Off Indicators). What could be wrong, the car still ran fine...


It's most likely going to be the wheel speed sensor which is located at the wheel bearing. when they become disconnected or the wire breaks your abs and traction light will come on and something your check engine light.

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.
